Mr. Capien desires us to say our Manaia correspondent erred in reporting him to have been engaged in the case Penlaze v.
We hear that the Croftmoor farm has been sold, Mr. Babbage being the buyer. Our informant was not sure whether it was tho manager of tbe Bank of Australasia at Wanganui or his brother or both, who bought the property.
Buchanan v. Laird continues the topic of conversation among farmers and is likely to do so till Wednesday, when the R.M. gives his decision. It is very unfortunate that the affair should have occurred, for the costs will inevitably be heavy, and the loser whoever it is will be an innocent sufferer. It is the hardest fight that has yet occurred in the Hawera Court, and the loser will not be able to complain that the most was not made of his case. The legal gentleman on each side conducted their case with admirable skill.

You are a lyiug " cuss." — The Chairman called Mr. McLauchlan to order, and said he would leave the chair if Mr. McLauchlan did not behave himself. — Mr. McLauchkn : You can go home if you like.
